A hidden gem in Arcola Saskatchewan goes by the name on Buddy's Pub. Buddy's Pub is one of the three opera houses left in Saskatchewan. It was built in 1906 and features one of the longest bars in western Canada. Ronny Aschenbrenerr, the owner of Buddy's took over 12 years ago and loves her job. She explains that she adored Saskatchewan and its flat look so much that she made it apart of her 5-year plan to own a pub in the province. When she found Buddy's she admired the woodworking and couldn't say no to the place.
Aschenbrenner explains "I like Saskatchewan! I like flat, I love the feel of flat. so I put a newspaper under my arm and said I'm looking for a pub in Saskatchewan. This place was beautiful. I couldn't really afford it but I couldn't afford to leave it behind."
Before Buddy's was a pub in 1990, the building was used as many different things including a library, fire department, dance hall, and theatre. Buddy's is also the location for many wedding anniversaries giving that several weddings took place in the dance hall which brings back regular customers.
The beloved pub is home to good customer service, good food, and great conversation. It is available for celebrations such as birthdays, Christmas parties, and Valentine dinners. It is also recommended that you stop in on Thursdays at 5 for their famous rack of ribs.
